What customers say about "Display"
LG 34UC89G-B Curved UltraWide IPS Gaming Monitor
  • The color on this monitor is excellent.
  • The game presets offer nice vivid colors and the 144hz makes everything really nice and smooth.
  • It's an IPS panel, colors are great and the image has a nice "pop".
  • The 144Hz G-Sync works great with my NVIDIA gpu, and the IPS display has great color accuracy for every game I've tried.
  • This monitor is simply amazing. The colors, expansive view and quality is top notch.
LG 34UC79G-B Curved IPS Gaming Monitor
  • The slight curve makes games really immersive.
  • Not sure why others are complaining, but the brightness on my panel is just fine! (just dont select preset fps modes, custom tune everything and enable FreeSync manually)
  • Incredibly precise contrast, wasn't sure what "Mega" Conrast Ratio meant from the specs but apparently it's 1mil+ to 1 ratio.
  • Bleeding on the corners when all black screen, welcome to IPS.
  • The brightness is a little bit less than my last monitor and most other IPS panels but still plenty bright enough to use in a well lit room.

What customers say about "Features"
LG 34UC89G-B Curved UltraWide IPS Gaming Monitor
  • The OSD is snappy and easily navigable via the little joystick nub.
  • I absolutely love this monitor. The arc, the small bezel, the 166hz refresh rate, colors, g sync, and ultrawide awesomeness.
  • Great colors. High refresh rate is great for gaming. Great for Photo Editing and Video work. Nice and bright.
  • The monitor has been great so far I've had no problems at all. The picture, color and size of this monitor are excellent.
  • When the stand sits straight centered towards me on my desk the monitor swivels to the right.
LG 34UC79G-B Curved IPS Gaming Monitor
  • The back of the panel has a standard 100x100mm VESA mount pattern, which I am using instead of the included stand.
  • The frame makes this monitor appear nearly bezel-less. It looks very nice.
  • Out of the box I am loving it, setup was easy and it's gorgeous.
  • Another awesome feature is LG's desktop controls.
  • The monitor has volume control and audio output for headphones and for external audio systems, but does not have speakers.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
LG 34UC89G-B Curved UltraWide IPS Gaming Monitor
  • I'm using DisplayPort to connect this monitor and turned off the laptop screen. Everything work amazing.
  • The monitor has excellent outputs for easy connection.
  • I like that I can connect USB device directly to the monitor, excellent USB ports.
  • If you use the HDMI connection then you are limited to 60 fps.
  • USB ports and aux port not working on back of monitor.
LG 34UC79G-B Curved IPS Gaming Monitor
  • There are 3 connections in the back, 2 of which are HDMI; while the third is a Display port. It is convenient to switch between 3 devices, so that's a good thing.
  • There is also a USB hub with 2 ports; one of them is a fast charging port; and support USB 3.0.
  • Came with 1x HDMI and 1x DP cable. I used the provided DP cable to get the 144hz.
  • 2 hdmi slots, can attach up to two computers and switch between.
  • Doesn't include b-type USB cord to feed the on-board ports (cheap solution and shouldn't be a game-changer).
